  1. Merge teams to prevent multiple teams with the same purpose

    People will start a team if they cannot find some team that match their needs. However, when they actually find a team that is similar afterwards, I can imagine that like to merge.

  3. Action items and tracking

    It would be awesome to add action items in any of channel to a person and each person received consolidated list of action items (in separate space) that they can review without going thru each of the channel

  4. Conversation Order.

    We should be able to choose the order of conversations. At the very least, the most recent conversation should be on top. It takes too long to scroll all the way to the bottom.

  6. Bug? Uploading team logo does not always work

    I experienced this error several times now. I created a new team and tried to upload a team picture. No matter which size or file type (png, jpg), I always get the message "Problem uploading your picture. Please try again later."
    Then I created another team and the picture upload worked without any problem. After waiting approx. 5 minutes, uploading worked on the first team.

    Why is that? Do we just have to wait some time before we add a team picture? Then some notification would ne nice when creating a new team.

    Great work by the way! :-)

  7. Delete Connector Generated Posts

    We have an RSS connector publishing posts to a channel. Sometimes, these posts aren't relevant to the channel.

    It would be good if anyone (or possibly just the Group Owners) could delete these connector generated posts.

    Without deleting the post, relevant channel connect gets pushed up the feed meaning its more likely that useful conversations aren't seen.

  8. Each instance of a recurring meeting should have separate conversation history

    We have a recurring meeting tied to the team's channel and the conversation history has grown way too long over time. Each reply also notifies the accumulation of all participants even if they're not attending the current instance anymore.

  9. Sharing Desktop Zoom in and out capability

    Participants should have the capability to zoom in on the user who's sharing their screen with the participants.

    We are actively working on developing a solution for this. I will update when this gets to testing/validation.

  10. Mark all as Read

    I constantly have notification warnings for teams I am in but rarely interact with. I can't get these notifications to go away unless I click each message and team window so that they are marked as read.

    There needs to be a "Mark all as read" button some where.

  11. Convert an existing channel out into a new team.

    I would like to be able to easily convert an existing channel out into its own new team. I would like to be able to maintain a New Projects Team containing channels for various new projects in their consideration/potential development phase, once a new project is accepted for full development I would like to be able to convert that channel out into its own full fledged team.

  12. Tracking changes in Microsoft Teams

    It's a real bummer to not be able to track changes when files are edited in MS teams. I am a teacher and I think this feature is so important for me to give students feedback (my edits) on the work they submitted.

    Hope to see this feature soon!

  13. Virtual group for tagging multiple members inside a group

    Make a virtual user grouping that can be managed by conversation group admin.

    For example, all the release teams in the company are on a single Teams conversation group. If a person wants to address all the scrum masters in their message, there is no way to do it currently except to @tag each one of them.

    My suggestion is to have a virtual grouping like @ScrumMasters. The group name and the members of that group should be manageable by the admin for the whole group.

  15. Duplicate/Clone a channel within a team

    I run regular events which I create a channel for each event within the team, including the planning app with buckets and actions.

    It is very time consuming to set up the channel/planner each time and would be preferable to set up a template which I can duplicate for each new event, including the planner app.

  16. Activity feed for ALL Teams activity

    Right now the Activity tab only shows conversation activity. This tab should show ALL activity across ALL Teams activity: Files, Planner, Wiki, etc.

  17. Set reminders on conversations and replies within a conversation.

    Problem: You create a conversation to do something (such as create a new icon) and the team member responds they will get to it later, but there is no way to go back to see what conversations require follow up.

    Possible solution: set reminders on a conversation or a reply within a conversation for individual team members or the whole team with a certain date or time.

  18. Member Permissions for Channels

    Request #1: Currently, as shown in that attachment, permissions can only be changed for the general channel. Allow these settings to be changed for each channel.

    Request #2: Add an addition option where "Only owners can start a new conversation, but anyone can reply". Example use: Only a manager could post an announcement, but everyone could reply to that comment.

  19. hard delete deleted channels

    is there any way of "hard" deleting, deleted channels?
    i've did some testing regarding the 200 channel limit, now i can't create new channels, as still the limit is reached because the test channels are still under deleted channels….

  20. Allow delete in General channel Conversations tab

    I can delete inside of every channel conversation tab except the General channel. This General channel conversation is precisely, and unfortunately, where inappropriate content will find it's way under Murphy's Law...
